Concussions are often referred to as “invisible injuries”, due to the fact that they often don’t show up on traditional imaging such as MRI and CT scans. As a result, they are often cleared by their medical provider for their injuries despite suffering from lingering symptoms indicating there is still an unresolved problem – setting them up for further potential injury.
Concussions and their debilitating effects have continued to receive increasing attention, particularly in adolescents due to the long-term consequences. More than 500,000 concussions are sustained annually by the 4.4 Million student-athletes who play football alone. With these alarming numbers it’s important for parents and students to understand that effective treatment options are available.
At Rebound SportsMed, we use cutting-edge diagnostics and laboratory testing to thoroughly assess the function of your nervous system to understand your injuries and what areas of the brain have been affected.
We then use a specialized, brain-based approach to address the neurological and musculoskeletal issues often associated with concussions – such as headaches, light and sound sensitivity, chronic pain, dizziness, brain fog, anxiety, impaired focus and academic performance.
Our approach focuses on rebuilding and improving brain function through non-invasive neurological and musculoskeletal rehabilitation therapies targeted at re-connecting and improving the efficiency of neural pathways to reduce the symptoms of concussion and improve overall performance.
